Euan Dougal, the head pro at Coppinwood, the high-profile club outside of Toronto with a course designed by Tom Fazio, is leaving in the New Year to take a position at a private course in Scottsdale, Arizona. I’ve known Euan for several years — since he became head pro prior to the opening of Eagles Nest, and have always found him great fun to play a round with, and enjoyable for his frank, honest opinions. I wish him well in his new gig.
In other news, apparently Colin Thompson, the former associate pro at St. George’s Golf and CC has apparently taken over the head position following the departure of Cameron Wiebe. There’s lots of rumors circulating throughout the golf industry about St. George’s following the departure of Wiebe and general manager Michael Chadsey. In my experience, both men were among the best in the Canadian golf business, but apparently there’s something afoot at St. George’s.
